Open access and peer review

A few periodicals with fairly different takes on a recent Associated Press story about open access, PLoS and PLoS One, and Nature's new open review experiment --

Wired News: Web journals take on peer review

Boston Herald: Online journals threaten traditional scientific peer-review system

Washington Times: Internet journals offer researchers quick publishing

Looking at the results of a Google News search seems to indicate that most of the media titles that have picked up this story have focused on the confrontation aspect.

Chris Surridge of PLoS One discusses the AP article on the PLoS One blog.

And thanks to Mark for pointing out these two links:
Peter Suber of Open Access News caught this too.

Seed went with a more subtle take on the confrontation aspect: "Free, For All: How will the open access movement affect global science?
